Thanks V,would be great for someone's collection.
Hoping to find one of the others in genus.

You sent me a false click beetle(1) several years back. I would deary love to have this one, I don't even have the family in my collection.
Thanks for considering,
Boy I was looking at a recent specimen posted looked at others, saw yours and just now realized yours is from 2010. So I suppose you have long ago spent this one out to someone else. Sorry, but thanks for posting such a fine specimen.
